  • Optional: shredded or cubed cooked chicken


Instructions-Slow cooker

  1. Put everything into the slow cooker except the chicken.
  2. Cook on low for 6-7 hours, or high for 4-5. When vegetables and lentils are tender, and soup is thick, you will know it is ready.
  3. Add the chicken at the end, so it doesn’t overcook in the soup.
  4. Serve with a variety of toppings; suggestions below.


Broken tortilla chips

Shredded cheddar cheese

Sliced jalapenos


Sour cream

Mary-Beth says:You can make this on your stovetop. Cook the vegetables first, then add the chicken stock, tomatoes, beans, corn and lentils and spices. Let simmer for about 45-60 min, covered to cook through.”
